     I put a turban on, grabbed my ball (crystal that is) and I had a close
     and detailed look at my last posting.

     In my original message I used the word cafe with an accent over the
     "e". That wasn't acceptable to most of your email software out there.
     They interpreted that little accented e as a "corrupt" character and
     forced the whole thing to be "Mimed" or otherwise to be translated as
     if it was written in a different application all together. Probably
     some of you got the attachment logo (usually a paper clip icon) next
     to the "inbox" title bar.

     I resent my message again, but this time I replaced the word cafe,
     with the (not as select) word "pubs". This time it worked with no

     And after having said all this, I actually realize that I forgot to
     mention one other important thing about web supported e-mail: That is
     that all the sites being constructed under an HTML programming
     language, they can easily support and the kind of image attachment
     (TIF BMP JPEG GIF etc) which made our life miserable until now, when
     tried to use the other email software for this purpose. Yes! you can
     send and receive images through web email sites as long as your
     recipient uses the same kind of (through the web) email. Even
     Hypertext will be presented to you in the body of the message in a
     form of a link to whatever site you are directed to.

     Have a nice day everybody
